Unit 49 in Idaho

I drew a permit for bull elk in unit 49 in Idaho. After hunting four days and seeing nine bulls I took a so-so 6x6 bull. I was shooting a model 7 Rem in 300 Rem s a ultra mag. I use a 4x12 Leupold scope with a Drop'in'sator and will go out to about 600yds.

I shot this bull at 575 yards.I did a lot of shooting from 300-600 this past summer and use a lazer range finder. I would like to set up another long range rig with a little more horsepower, maybe a full ultra mag in a 300. Thanks Outlaw.

Welcome Outlaw.
Out of curiosity, what bullet did you use for the 575 yard shot on the elk and how did it perform?

Re: Unit 49 in Idaho

Thanks for the welcome. As far as the load it was 165gr Remington factory load for the 300 Rem. S. A. Ultra Mag. with a 4x12 new Vi x II Leupold. I put a Drop'in'Sator on it and I use a lazer ranger rangefinder. I ranged one of three bulls at 564yds as they were moving up a ridge,I layed prone shooting off my day pack. I had been shooting during the summer 300-600 yds. Outlaw
